Item description for Commentary-Ephesians (NIV Application Commentary) by Klyne Snodgrass...
Overview What was Paul's real message to the Ephesians in the first century? And what significance does that message have nearly 20 centuries later? This unique commentary will help you not only understand the message of Ephesians but also bring it to the modern world with relevance and power.
Publishers Description Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

A Must for Ephesians Sep 25, 2003
Dr. Snodgrass turns sermon prep into a Spirit filled experience by offering profound thought and application of Ephesians to the modern life. Klyne takes Paul's call to "ground, shape and challenge the readers so they might live a life of faith" to the contemporary church through exegetical insights and profound application. This commentary is simply outstanding at numberous levels. It has impacted my spiritual walk and has been a powerful preaching/teaching tool.
Great Help! Oct 31, 2002
As a minister, I decided to preach through the book of Ephesians. Because I tend to preach with a more exegetical style, I was very interested in having a commentary that examined the history of the text and gave practical use for today. This commentary accomplished all of this and more. Yes, there were times when I felt that Snodgrass's application was perhaps not for what I was looking. However, the most significant part to me was exegetically handling the Word of God. I recommend this commentary to both lay people and ministers.
